During difficult situations it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking we can change our external world or people around us without examining our own state of mind. Yet in moments of conflict or difficulty, there is an opportunity to investigate the causes that give rise to our experiences, forming the basis on which to transform these experiences. Ven. Robina challenges us to look beyond our ego, karma, and perception of reality toward a truth that is infinitely more powerful.
